Gark, I am sorry but fail to see what is complex about running a wood stove. Some like to say our stove, being a cat stove, is complicated to operate. Sorry, but if moving 2 levers is complicated, then there are a whole bunch of people out in this world that should not even be operating cars or trucks! That is a whale of a lot more complicated than running any wood stove. I was able to teach my wife (who is very difficult to teach anything to) and two sons how to operate a couple different stoves. They had no problems and non thought it complicated or complex. Move this lever here and that lever there.
